Keleigh, how did your birthday go? I hope you enjoyed it at least a little bit. It's a celebration of YOU! My Dad's birthday is coming up on the 16th this month. Not sure what I will do. It's been three months and I miss him every day.
Those who have experienced this... tomorrow is my first Birthday with out my mom... I am dreading the whole day and trying to so my best to plan things so I don't stay in bed all day. As much as I have told my family I just don't want it acknowledged this year, I know they will. Last year my mom was dying but well enough to have dinner with me. It was so special. She stayed out so late we got locked out of the respite home she was staying out. We laughed for weeks about how I kept her out past her curfew and got her in trouble. It was a tough birthday b/c I had just lost my daddy and he chose to celebrate the whole month (mostly b/c he had Alzheimers and couldn't remember the exact day) and he was my best friend. Mom and I knew it would be our last together... it was weird knowing that the woman who birthed me into this world was soon to leave it. This year is the first with out mom and with out mom and dad together. This sucks.... I sometimes feel like an orphan
So sorry for your loss Susie. Your Mom was so young. This is the right place to be to share your feelings with people that have gone through the same thing. I definitely miss my Dad every day, but know he always wanted me to be happy and live my life to the fullest.
I'm new to this group too. Lost my Mom 15 years ago and my Dad almost three months ago. I see such a pattern with guilt. I feel a lot of that too. My Dad had a lot of problems, was in the hospital then recommended to a nursing home rehab to get his strength back. He never really snapped back in the nursing home like we expected. He passed away a couple of weeks later. I always wonder if I had brought him home and got help there if it would have been different. How do others deal with the "what if" situations?
